President Obama's First Executive Order

Satire by John W. Lillpop

With the American economy in free fall, unemployment soaring, two wars being waged in far distant lands and more in the offing, and the American people anxious for immediate change, President-elect Barack Obama has ordered his staff to prepare the first Executive Order of his presidency.

As this will be the new president's first act of power since being elected, the subject matter is of utmost importance to all Americans and to the entire world.

A copy of said EO, which has been signed and is being held at an undisclosed location under the care of Vice President-elect Joe Biden until January 20, 2009, has been pilfered and is reproduced below:

"Executive Order: BOM-1
Date: January 20, 2009, 3:30 PM, EST
Effective: Immediately
Refer Questions to: Don't Bother

CC: ACORN Community Organizers, DNC

In accordance with the authority vested in me by the United States Constitution, I hereby order that the Washington, D.C., structure previously identified as the "White House" shall be renamed the Diversity Palace henceforth, effective immediately.

This vital administrative action is taken to assure that that the seat of American government appropriately reflects the growing diversity of the American people and the overwhelming mandate for CHANGE demanded as a result of the 2008 election.

This EO is irreversible and supersedes any and all past or future designations in toto.

As ordered, so shall it be!
